Why We Love Rectangular Flush Mount Ceiling Lights
If you don’t have a lot of ceiling to floor space to work with, rectangular flush mount ceiling lights are a good choice for your home. The low-profile light naturally draws the eye upwards, creating more space, and the large light provides ample lighting to big areas. Stylish and functional, rectangle flush mount lights are right at home in almost any space.
Where Rectangular Flush & Semi-Flushmounts Work the Best
Rectangular flush mount ceiling lights have an extremely low profile that provides good, general lighting to a large area without crowding a room. Their bright light is best in areas with a lot of daily traffic like kitchens or living areas. If your entryway is too low for an extravagant lighting fixture, like a square chandelier, rectangular semi-flush mount lighting is a clever alternative. Although you typically see this style in rectangular kitchen lights, don’t be afraid to step out of the box. Use them to turn night into day in a dark basement with low ceilings for a well-lit entertainment area or in windowless hallways to brighten things up.
Favorite Rectangular Flush Mount Lighting Styles
The sharp and slim look of rectangular flush mount ceiling lights lends itself well to modern, contemporary styles, but that doesn’t mean that it’s without diversity. You’ll find designs ranging from a simple, classic glass covers to extremely exotic hand-blown shades. Some styles join several different rectangular fixtures while others offer one, smooth surface.
How to Choose the Perfect Rectangular Ceiling Light Fixture
A rectangular ceiling light fixture that sits flush is best for rooms with extremely low ceilings. They’ll provide a nice bright light to open up your room without taking up any space. And, although they are available in halogen and fluorescent options, we love the LED rectangular ceiling lights for their low energy consumption and even color temperature.
Other Rectangular Lighting Choices
If this geometric, space-saving flush and semi-flush mounts styles pique your interest, there are plenty of other complementary lights available to complete your lighting setup. We even have flush mount ceiling fans to create a breeze without intruding on a low-ceilinged room. Square recessed lighting is a popular companion for its similar silhouette and minimal profile. Use a rectangular flush mount ceiling light in your food prep area and pair a square pendant light over your dining space for a consistent style and functional purpose.
